Alec Bradley Cigar Co.
Announces Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV
2500 Boxes of the Eleventh Iteration of Signature Limited Edition to Release in April 2022
Fort Lauderdale, FL (January 22, 2022)
Alec Bradley Cigar Co. today announced that they will be issuing the 11th release of Fine & Rare in April 2022. Originally scheduled to arrive to appointed tobacconists by November 18, 2021, packaging for the newest Fine & Rare iteration, dubbed BC-(13)4EV, has been affected by supply chain issues plaguing the premium cigar industry. Featuring a collectable high-gloss, two-tone blue box and ornate cigar bands, only 2500 Fine & Rare BC-(13)EV sets will be presented for global distribution.
“Alec Bradley brand advocates have come to expect the arrival of the annual release Fine & Rare to tobacconists in November,” said Alec Bradley founder, Alan Rubin. “We are disappointed by the delay, but we are still very excited to bring BC-(13)4EV to market!”
The first “Churchill” in the Fine & Rare series, the 7″ x 50 ring-gauge BC-(13)4EV showcases an astonishing ten distinct tobaccos. The blend features a stunning estate grown wrapper from Trojes, Honduras, adorning a blend of rare binder and filler leaves from Nicaragua and Honduras. All the tobaccos for the ultra-premium offering have been specifically chosen to achieve extraordinary flavor, complexity and balance.
Additionally, Mr. Rubin indicated that, unlike previous 10-count Fine & Rare sets, the upcoming release will include a very special eleventh cigar, called BC-(13)4EV-B, celebrating the 11th anniversary of the project. BC-(13)4EV-B’s size and blend are not being disclosed at this time.
First released in 2011, Fine & Rare is an iterative project that Mr. Rubin created to push the boundaries of cigar blending. Each version of Fine & Rare contains 10 unique tobaccos, an amount more than any other blend in the world. Due to the complex nature of Fine & Rare, only a single pair of master rollers have ever been entrusted to construct them.
Alec Bradley will be urging tobacconists to sell the entire 11 cigar experience as a single unit. Only twenty-five thousand BC-(13)4EV and 2500 BC-(13)4EV-B cigars were produced for the forthcoming release. For the US market, MSRP has been set to $260 per box, before any applicable taxes. International prices will vary. Presale of Fine & Rare BC-(13)4EV to appointed tobacconists worldwide will begin shortly and are scheduled to ship in April 2022. Fine & Rare is being produced at Fabrica De Tobaccos Raices Cubanas- Danli, Honduras.
“We want to assure our tobacconist partners and consumer supporters that Alec Bradley has not ceased the annual tradition of Fine & Rare,” Mr. Rubin continued. “BC-(13)4EV will be worth the wait!”
